“We are committed to continue spotlighting our impressive staff and what it takes to operate a large, multi-faceted enterprise which is very much like running a small city,” said George Galinsky, SVP of Marketing Communications at Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE). “We do enjoy peeling back the curtain like no one has ever done before to give fans an inside look at the operation and the people they would never get to see – all while displaying our family-friendly work environment and underscoring Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment as a global integrated entertainment resort leader.”
Introducing new cast members and bringing back a few familiar faces, “Back of House” season three follows the professional lives of six Mohegan Sun employees, including the resort’s Creative Events Manager, Executive Pastry Chef, Multimedia Designer, Director of Asian Communications, Public Events Planner and General Manager of novelle – Mohegan Sun’s new ultra-lounge venue which opened this summer. From planning large-scale VIP events to preparing kitchen staff for a massive gathering, “Back of House” reveals how Mohegan Sun staff transform behind-the-scenes operations into fun and memorable experiences for every guest, while demonstrating their collaborative relationships and the “wow” factor that comes with working at one of the world leaders in resort entertainment.
“We produce high quality visuals that offer a unique perspective on teamwork in action at Mohegan Sun. Our approach to this style of storytelling ensures that audiences will be inspired to visit the destination and experience it firsthand,” said Robert Conticelli, President of Primal-NY.
In 2019, “Back of House” received multiple accolades from the 25th Annual Communicator Awards, the leading international program recognizing big ideas in marketing.
